Very Warm Saturday Cooler Cloudy Sunday Monday Passing Showers
Very Warm Saturday Cooler Cloudy Sunday Monday
It is certainly a warm Saturday and a very warm start to the Memorial Day weekend. We are seeing a fari amount of sunshine. To the north on the satellite loop you can see clouds that are associated with the next cold front. That front will be approaching us this evening. It could trigger off a couple of widely scattered showers or a thunderstorm but right now the bet is that most areas will get away with not seeing much of anything this evening. Best chances for a shower or thundertorm look to be in South Jersey & Southeast Pennsylvania. Temperatures are moving through the 80s and some highs near 90 degrees are possible this afternoon away from the ocean.
Regional & local radars are quiet for the time being and I don't expect much to pop up until after 3 or 4 pm. I don't expect any severe weather issues either so stick with outdoor plans for the remainder of the day and keep an eye on the sky this evening in case a shower or thunderstorm pops up in your neighborhood.

The front will stall to our south and overnight some downpous will develop along and just north of the frontal boundary. We may see these showers pass through Sunday morning arriving before daybreak and done I think in most areas by mid morning.
The rest of Sunday will be in clouds and passing showers with temperatures in the 60s to near 70 but some areas in South Jersey & Southeastern Pennsylvania could be in the warmer 70s to low 80s depending on exactly where the frontal boundary sets up. Monday Memorial Day look for lots of clouds with the chance for a passing shower but I think for most Monday is rain free. Highs on average Monday will be in the upper 60s to middle 70s.
